Nice hotel”

breakfast is free but it would be good if there would be a wider variety to choose from especially for those staying longer

We booked for one day at Winner hotel but decided to book 3 more days or until the end of our stay. The staff at the reception is friendly, accommodating, and nice. The hotel is at the center of the city and the malls, the night market, the seafood restaurant etc. are just within walking distance. From the hotel's window (we were in the 8th floor) we had a good view of the city, the bay, and the sunrise and sunset. Taxi is easily accessible and fare to the airport is only RM30.

Me and my friends stayed for 4 nights and we are satisfied. Our room in the 6th floor was clean and comfortable. There is no mini fridge in the room but the front office helped us kept our food. Every staff we met in the hotel are very friendly and helpful. They gave me a map around Kota Kinabalu town. We love the nasi lemak served for breakfast. Shops, restaurants and even laundry are all nearby. Parkings are limited but across the hotel, there are more parking space available along the shoplots. I would stay in this hotel again. Thank you for the warm hospitality.

good location, value for money

We had a pleasant stay. For the price, breakfast included was a bonus, even the newspaper was a pleasant surprise. One suggestion is that they provide more information on tours around Kota Kinabalu and the area. They had no such brochures and the hotel staff had limited information. The hotel personnel though were pleasant and helpful. We appreciate their service.

Central location but room was quite small”

Staff were very helpful with excellent English

The Winner Hotel is well located in Kota Kinabalu for shops, markets and transport. The room was very clean and the bathroom had recently been refurbished. The room was nicely decorated with quality furniture but the room itself was very small. We found the staff most helpful and friendly, speaking excellent English - we could not fault their level of service. We had organised the free breakfast but this was very disappointing. There was very little selection and even what was on offer (essentially noodles or rice)was not particularly good. However, for the small amount that we paid, it represented reasonable value.

Location, cleanliness.
Breakfast OK, but quite small.

We had three nights here altogether. It made an ideal base for exploring KK, particularly the islands just offshore. It is also near enough to Mt Kinabalu to be picked up from (7 am) and make it up to the huts on the same day. The rooms are quite small but very well fitted out with cable tv and tea/coffee. The free newspaper under the door was a nice touch. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
